I’ve received lots of emails from guys concerned about their prostate… questions such as:
- What are the symptoms of prostate cancer?
- How can I tell if my prostate has grown or if it’s too large?
- What can I do to shrink my prostate or avoid cancer?
And these are all valid and smart questions considering the number #1 cancer to kill men is Prostate cancer. And these days, it’s happening in younger men and the problem is growing faster.
Not only is this clinically validated, but I also know this first hand because my cousin is a Urologist and he’s told me about how the prostate situation is only getting worse.
Not to mention, I’ve also had two uncles who have died of prostate cancer and thus, I’m fully aware of the problem, causes, and solutions.
Symptoms Of Prostate Cancer
First, let’s just start with the potential symptoms or warning signs that you may have prostate cancer.
The Bad News
The bad news is that in most cases, prostate cancer symptoms are not apparent in the early stages of the disease. However, the good news is that there are 2 simple tests that you should do after the age of 40, to help figure this out, and I’ll tell you these in a minute.
Because the prostate gland is close to the bladder (where urine is held) and the urethra (where urine comes out of), prostate cancer may be accompanied by a variety of urinary symptoms, especially in the early stages.
Depending on its size and location, a tumor may press on and constrict the urethra, inhibiting the flow of urine. Some early prostate cancer signs include:
- Burning or pain during urination
- Difficulty urinating, or trouble starting and stopping while urinating
- More frequent urges to urinate at night
- Loss of bladder control
- Decreased flow or velocity of urine stream
- Blood in urine (hematuria)
- Blood in semen
- Difficulty getting an erection (erectile dysfunction)
- Painful ejaculation
Not Always A Sign Of Cancer
However, I want to point out that these symptoms are not always a sign that you have prostate cancer. It could simply mean your prostate has grown, which happens to most men as they age.
It’s called “Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia” or BPH. It’s not cancer. Thus, the word “benign”.
However, this is also a warning sign that cancer may happen. And if nothing else, you need to shrink the prostate because your penis is NOT going to be happy and life is going to be uncomfortable, to say the least.
The Good News
And now the good news – there are 2 easy and simple ways to find out if you potentially have prostate cancer or just that your prostate has overgrown and needs to be dealt with.
- The first is a digital rectal exam.
This is when the doctor will insert his finger in your anus and feel your prostate for size.
- The second is a blood test for “prostate-specific antigen” (PSA).
Which is a protein that can indicate prostate cancer or inflammation, depending on how high the levels are and other hormonal factors.
The Real Cause Of Prostate Cancer & Problems
Okay, so now that we know the symptoms, let’s talk about the potential causes of prostate growth and cancer.
As usual, genetics always plays a key role in anything with the body.
However, as I’ve stated over and over again in the past, genetics aside, the primary cause of how you look and feel, including getting diseases and cancers and so forth are your HORMONES.
More specifically, the imbalance.
For example, idiot doctors will say that the cause of prostate cancer is testosterone and that’s why the “solution” is chemical castration and thus, turning OFF your testicles so you produce almost no more testosterone.
Yes, this shrinks the prostate – but it’s NOT from non-existent testosterone.
It’s actually from the negative hormones that testosterone converts to – DHT and more importantly, estrogens.
IF high testosterone was the cause, then all the younger guys in their teenage years and 20s would have prostate cancer or problems because this is when testosterone is at its highest.
However, there are ZERO issues at these younger ages with super high testosterone levels.
YET, men have prostate problems after the age of 40, and more specifically, around their 60s, and this is when testosterone is at its LOWEST levels.
However, this is also when the negative hormones — DHT (dihydrotestosterone) and Estrogens are at their HIGHEST!
Again, the imbalance in hormones.
How I Never Have Prostate Problems
This is why starting at age 20, I did everything possible to increase my testosterone levels, while lowering my DHT and estrogen.
I OPTIMIZED my hormones and created the perfect balance.
The end result at almost age 50, I have the hormone levels of a young 20-year-old and a very small prostate with a low PSA score of only 0.4 ng/mL.
Men at my age will have round 2 or 3.
If you’re between 4-10 ng/mL – there is a warning and a 25% chance you have prostate cancer.
If you’re over 10 ng/mL – this is very dangerous and over a 50% chance, you have prostate cancer.
And I also have a very high sex drive and never have erection issues.
Again, fix the hormones, balance, and optimize them – and you’ll fix most of your body’s health issues – including prostate cancer.
Now, if you want more information about this – I’ve done other articles that I have linked for you here:
- Quickly and naturally optimize your hormones and thus, dramatically improve prostate health and your erections
- The REAL Cause & Solutions for Prostate Cancer
Please make sure you take a look at these other important topics because I care about you and I don’t want you to get prostate cancer as my uncles did. It was too late for me to help them, but I hope I can help you.
Prostate problems can be avoided and fixed. I guarantee it!
